How can I apply for a Chinese driver's license in Shanghai?

If you are over 18 and have a valid driver's license from another country then you will most likely only need to complete a written (computerized) test to obtain a 6 year Chinese driver's license for a minimal fee.

You should go to the Shanghai Driver's Licensing Centre: No. 179, Qinchun Road, Minhang District.

Office hours: 9:00 AM-5:30 PM on Monday-Thursday; 9:00 AM-4:00 PM on Friday

Tel: 021-64987070


* Bring someone with you who can write Chinese
* Take photographs at the center
* Collect a standard application form and complete the form in Chinese script
* Have a medical examination
* Have your foreign driver's license translated into Chinese at an authorized translation service center
* Take the papers needed (pictures, passport, foreign driver's license, and Chinese translated license) back to a reception counter
* Make arrangements to take the written test

If all of these steps are followed without incident, you may receive your Chinese driver's license within 5 days after passing the test and paying the fees.


* Service charge: 5RMB
* License fee: 10RMB
* Written test: 40RMB (if you pass the first time)

5RMB +10RMB +40RMB= 55RMB total
